This hotel looked nice in the pictures AND was recommended by Delta Airlines (shame on you Delta). It is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. There is no reception desk. You talk into a dirty phone that's in a dirt box near the front of the hotel in the pitch black of night where the woman on the other... More

We decided to take a spur of the moment weekend trip from sc ( 8 hour drive). We were happy when they let us check in early with no hassles so we could rest a while. The building is showing some age but to be far they have notices posted saying that painting is in progress. But honestly for the... More

Tidewater Beach Resort was great! We only stayed 2 nights to end our vacation, but if we'd known it was going to be a great place to stay we would have booked for more nights! Condo was clean and beautiful views of the sunrise and East side of the beach. Guest services were great and very friendly. Couldn't check in... More

Check-in is after, but we arrived early since we slept over in Tallahassee. Expected trouble because of the early xheck-in, but there was NO problem. We were told some rooms were available, courteous staff(all that we met), property is well maintained. Have to park across the street, but there is a gated garage and a walk way from the garage...

My family traveled here for Spring Break, and chose this hotel due to it's proximity to the beach and TripAdvisor ratings! The hotel also turned out to be in walking distance to Pier Park shopping center, which was great. We stayed in a unit on the 30th floor, and the view was amazing! The only problem with being up that... More

Stayed here April 18-24 2015 and rented a 2 bedroom (plus bunk beds) 3 bath on the 19th floor via VRBO 298308. Room 1914. Place is in a great location and close to stuff like pier park, about 1/2 mile down the road, which we walked to every night while we were there for dinner and shopping. There is also... More

For Panama City, the location is good...walking distance to Pier Park which is a BIG plus for shopping and dining. It is 5 miles away from the notorious "Spring Break" section of Panama City which is also nice. The beach itself is very nice with plenty of chairs and umbrellas, although the men who assign these in the morning are... More

This was our first visit to PCB and we enjoyed every bit of it. Resort to staff to the beach was amazing. The only thing that bothered us a bit were the elevators. Once in a while we had to wait ovet 10 min to get one.

We have visited a number of places along the beach while staying in Panama City Beach, Tidewater Beach Resort is our favorite place of all! To start off, they have a very secure facility. The location is towards the west end, so there is not as much craziness as the east end has. They have two large outdoor pools, two... More
